What do I need to bring?

Mainly just plenty of enthusiasm and a few muscles; but wear clothes suitable for working outdoors and, if you have them, a pair of steel toe-cap boots would be useful.

What sort of tasks will I do?

You will carry out many practical conservation tasks including:
  • pond clearing
  • balsam pulling
  • track clearing
  • mending benches
